Asian Women's Shelter brings new hope to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking.  We provide comprehensive services, including a 24-hour crisis line, shelter program, case management and access to health and legal services. At AWS, survivors and their children begin to heal and rebuild their lives.

Please join us! We need a wide network of resources and a community of activists and supporters. Together we can work to end violence and oppression in all of our communities. Read on in our Community Building section about how we can all help to build a world free from violence.

    We are proud to announce our 2016 Champion of Change, the Fred T. Korematsu Institute, led by Karen Korematsu, whose mission is closely aligned with our own. The Fred T. Korematsu Institute teaches civic education and engagement to learn from and never repeat the societal mistakes of our past. Through the inspiring example of Fred Korematsu, the Institute promotes understanding that "Fred Korematsu Day is not about Fred alone; it is about the principles of equality, freedom, and justice that we cherish and must work to protect for all."

    At this politlcal moment in our nation, join us in our call for equity and safety for immigrants, transgender people, families living in poverty, survivors of violence and oppression, and all of us working together toward justice.
